The tour is a nice 1.5 hour tour. Once the bus starts, one of the staff member starts telling about the different buildings and historic significance of different buildings and / or areas.

This trip is a fantastic 90minute tour round the main sights lit up at night. The guide Michael was amazing. He was really knowledgeable but also funny and even though we know London really well we still really enjoyed it ! Sit at the front at the top if you can but great views from all of the top deck - obviously even more special at Xmas with the lights and if the weather is dry!

The tour was amazing even in the rain. The guide was great and gave a lot of facts for each site we went by. I really enjoyed seeing everything lit up at night and seeing some of the Christmas lights. Highly recommend.

This tour was a wonderful introduction to the city. I had work events all day each day, so I was so thankful there was a night tour.

Nakib_J   18th November 2022

We bought this just 50 minutes before the tour was going to depart, but couldn't make it to their location despite rushing and doing our best. Contacted customer service requesting a refund, but they refused. The one we'd booked wasn't sold out or anything like that. So by giving us a refund on a purchase made less than an hour ago, they wouldn't have lost out on any other potential revenue; it'd have been the nice and classy move, and something I imagine the bigger tour companies do in order to foster customer goodwill.

Terrible experience. The bus driver said the 2120 night tour did not exist although I had ticket. I tried to explain, but he said there was only a 1900 tour that night and drove off. Worst customer experience ever with Viator, and I’ve used them around the world.
